The little girls green coat

Added Feb 5, 2010

by bjorgg

Reykjavik, Iceland






I made this little coat just to practice myself making a coat. I don’t have any niece to wear it (only nephews) but this was made for a 3 year old. I used some Burda pattern to help me make it, but it’s not the same as the pattern I used. I haven’t decided if I should make another hook, I think I will try it and than maybe upload another picture of it with too or three hooks.

- week 1 item – I’m challenging myself making a one item every week, this is week 1 item

Material Notes

I used a old wool coat of my mom as my material.




Garment Type
Casual, Evening Wear, Other
Velvet, Wool

    The coat is so adorable, I would kill for coat like that !! I love the colour, A-lined shape, pockets, collar, everything! Maybe I should try to make a coat for myself one day:)

    It’s gorgeous. I must also say that old materials were better than these that we use today. Good job!
